The liver is the seat of our overall health and wellness, and the health of nearly every organ is intimately connected with our liver. A healthy liver is essential to a fully functioning body, but our modern sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits can truly damage the liver - and damage our health overall. A silent health crisis is impacting one third of the American population - nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Because its symptoms often don´t manifest until the liver is seriously compromised, many people are not aware that they are at risk. Did you know that if you have fatty liver disease, you are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke) and potentially several devastating conditions such as liver cirrhosis and liver cancer? Did you know that fat is as dangerous as alcohol to the liver? Award-winning dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick and hepatologist Dr. Ibrahim Hanouneh have teamed up for a life-changing program that will help you achieve optimal health. Skinny Liver´s four-week program shares the steps you can take to get your liver health back on track, with everything from exercise to healthy eating and other lifestyle changes - along with delicious liver-friendly recipes. Written by two experts in the field and based on the latest research, Skinny Liver is an authoritative, easy-to-follow guide to health and wellness, not just for your most essential organ but for your whole body.

Award-winning neurologist and scholar Dr. David Perlmutter makes a compelling case for a grain-free lifestyle in his nonfiction book, Grain Brain. He claims that carbohydrates hinder brain development, impairing cognitive function and contributing to the development of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer´s and dementia. Most diseases of the brain, he argues, are preventable when one eats properly and adopts other healthy habits. He then gives readers the insight and advice they need to improve their lives and keep their brains functioning at peak efficiency for decades to come. This summary explores the major ideas found in Grain Brain, as well as the key take-aways from each chapter. Use it to help you make sense of the key thoughts Perlmutter presents and understand why the foods you eat play such an important role in your brain´s health. The book also presents readers with lists of must-have dietary staples, foods to consume in moderation, and foods to avoid, along with recipes that are both nutritious and tasty. Still, listeners may want to approach Grain Brain with caution: Although he uses scientific studies to back up his claims, Perlmutter does not acknowledge or respond to work that directly contradicts his own sources, which hampers his credibility. He also makes some illogical claims with no research to back them up. Allow our summary of Grain Brain to give you a complete picture of everything you should take away from this nonfiction piece. 1.

An eye-opening account of the landmark research into the hidden chemicals that are endangering our health and keeping us fatBeing overweight is not just the result of too many cheeseburgers or not enough exercise. According to leading-edge science, there are silent saboteurs in our daily lives that contribute greatly to our obesity epidemic: obesogens. These weight-inducing offenders, most of which are chemicals, disrupt our hormonal systems, alter how we create and store fat, and change how we respond to dietary choices. Because they are largely unregulated, obesogens lurk all around us - in food, furniture, plastic products such as water bottles and food storage containers, and other surprising exposure points. Even worse: research has shown that the effects of some obesogens can be passed on to future generations by irreversibly interfering with the expression of our genes. The good news is we can protect ourselves by becoming more informed consumers.In The Obesogen Effect, Dr. Bruce Blumberg describes how obesogens work, reveals where they are found, and offers a practical three-step solution for reducing exposures. He explains why one size does not fit all in a weight loss program, what hides in our household goods, and how we should shop for items we buy every day - from vegetables and meats to canned soup as well as household cleaners, air fresheners, and personal care products. The Obesogen Effect is an urgent call to action to protect your body, clean up your life, and set a straight course for better health.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1.
